Lucky Everyday: A Novel. Lucky Everyday - Bapsy Jain

Lucky Everyday: A Novel. An inspiring novel about a women named Lucky who is anything but. Lucky Everyday - Bapsy Jain. Bapsy Jain, the author, does clearly have a message she wishes to get across but she has rightfully (in my opinion) not done it in a way that makes it so in your face that you put the book down. Instead, the message flows throughout the book but quietly in the background. The ending does live big question marks and I for one and looking forward to the sequel, Night Vision, which is yet to be published.

I don't want to give anything away with regard to this book because I hate it when people do that, so I won't. I'll speak in sweeping generalizations instead.

This book was an entertaining read at times but I found it a bit too contrived for my taste (I'd already figured out the ending 50 pages into the book.) I found the character "Lucky" predictable, arrogant, dull and very self-centered. I found it difficult to care about her, I really did. I mean, here she was having what I consider a very charmed and wonderful life (particularly when compared to the lives of most other people)but all she seemed to do was whine and complain and wonder why it wasn't better. Don't get me wrong, she did experience genuinely difficult and challenging moments but I just couldn't figure out why she wasn't dancing around joyfully during the times between them. She never seemed to have a truly happy moment and I kept wondering, why?

There's a quote in this book that's used over and over again and is attributed to this book: "We are not human beings seeking a spiritual experience, but spiritual beings undergoing a human experience." This is not an original quote or concept. It is one that has been used throughout history by many spiritual philosophies, texts and leaders, such as "The Science of Mind" by Ernest Holmes, several writings and teachings of Deepak Chopra, Dr. Wayne Dyer and Don Miguel Ruiz just to name a few. It would have been nice for the author to give credit where credit is due even though this book is a work of fiction.

I was truly hoping that this book would be an undiscovered gem for me but I never connected with it. Oh well, better luck next time I suppose.

I enjoyed this read, with its suspense, the main character's grit, and the conveyance of the power of yoga. Interesting combinations.

Very well written! It always caught me by surprise by one courageous lady named Lucky! I'm still dumb founded by the ending ...

Once in a while comes an unusual novel that is a truly magical page turner. The number of books written by Indian authors, makes Bapsy Jain's book "Lucky Everyday" run the risk of being dismissed as yet another book by yet another Indian author. However from the start to the finish this is not to be!

Transporting the reader in time by moving between the past and present Bapsy Jain introduces us to vivid life like characters like Steve, the gruff prisoner, Mike her new business manager, Amay the nerd and Shanti the voice of spirituality that is timeless. Expertly introducing twists "Lucky Everyday" manages to avoid the trap of being a formula based thriller. What really elevates this book to a new level is the hope and inspiration and powerful message it holds, Reaching beyond the mystery we unravel the heart of the novel - Shanti's teachings which we can all use in our everyday lives too.

For me it is a master piece I can refer to time and time again. A big thank you Bapsy Jain :).

A friend of mine recommended this book to me and I bought it from Amazon. Having recently gotten out of a long term relationship myself I could completely relate to Lucky Boyce's character and her struggle to start life from scratch again. As you read the book u realize that even though the problems that Lucky's character faces are different from ones we face in our day to day lives but sum where sooner or later our inner demons catch up to us and then there is no choice but to face them head on. And that's exactly what Lucky does.....We all find some thing in our lives that helps us find our inner strength for Lucky Yoga gives her the calm and the peace required to face her fears. Personally for me meditation and yoga have been very therapeutic too and hence I loved this book. For those who are new to healing effects of yoga this book will definitely be an eye opener. Bottom line this book was money well spent for me and I would definitely recommend it to one and all. Hats off to Bapsy Jain for writing a book with such well defined characters and a gripping story that makes it difficult to put down. I recently read on Bapsy's website that she is working on a sequel to this book and I cannot wait to read it.

A great book for all readers, despite that Penguin appears to target young women in particular. Lucky, the protagonist, grows from an ambitious young professional to a fully-mature woman. But the twists and turns and interesting characters she meets along way will keep any reader turning pages. A mystery? Absolutely. A coming-of-age novel? Sort of. A novel with a message? Yes. But above all, a page turner. A very entertaining book.

THIS BOOK IS A MUST READ. YOU ENTER THE MOST UNEXPECTED WORLD OF SPIRITUALITY IN A PURE FORM, COMMON TO ALL HUMANITY. THE LESSONS LUCKY TEACHES TRANSFORM US. WE CAN CHOOSE TO BE BOUND BY THE PRISON OF OUR CIRCUMSTANCES OR WE CAN SEEK OUT OUR ULTIMATE POTENTIAL GOODNESS. LUCKY SHOWS THE LATTER PATH. THE AUTHOR DOES AN AMAZING JOB OF WEAVING A DEPTH OF SPIRITUAL LESSONS INTO A CAPTIVATING STORY WHICH YOU CAN'T PUT DOWN, FROM BEGINNING TO THE UNEXPECTED END
Lucky Everyday is a fun, exciting, and moving book. Lucky is an Indian woman who moves back to America after losing her husband, her job, and her status. She volunteers teaching yoga at a prison and meets all sorts of interesting people. The characters are lovable and believable, and the plot twists make the book a page turner. Most of all, this is a story of one woman's spiritual growth. The book teaches all sorts of interesting lessons without seeming preachy, because the reader simply follows Lucky on her journey. Lucky Everyday shows that sometimes you need to face horrible situations to become the best person you can be.
